This Felicia's Drive activity & project also includes:
- Answer Key
- Join to access all included materials
Learners consider several factors to determine if Felicia has enough gas to make it to her destination. They must explain the approximations Felicia might make while driving to determine if she needs to stop for gas. They are also asked to calculate how much she spends per mile while driving. Involves simple arithmetic, but is a good opportunity for young mathematicians to practice making appropriate estimations and to explain their reasoning.
